One Fish, Two Fish, Redfish, Clownfish

Below, a very short video clip, of the baby redfish or red drum that we are raising in our lab.

And last, but not least, our baby clownfish.

Ooooh, fish envy. The little clown fish are incredicute!

"Incredicute" is so accurate!

I didn't know clownfish had such a variety of make-up to offer the viewing public! They make my guppies look downright drab and dowdy.

Believe it or not, these beauties are culls.
They don't meet the market standard.
The hatchery was kind enough to allow us to give them a happy home.

Awww... true percs - and blacks, and a tomato, too bad they are FL natives. Will the kids give them a home at the end of the semester?

As for the drum, I got a 'home' for them.... *snort* a 500 gallon holding tank for getting 'em fat n sassy!

My mother always thought I was kidding when I said I wanted to turn our pool into a lobster tank, but I wasn't. I was a Marine Bio major but I was just as interested in eating as learning. ;-)

Loving the little clownfish! Do they have an anemone to live in? I watched a friend's clownfish tenderly feeding bits of fish to their anemone in their tank in S. Africa and was completely charmed. Lucky kids to have that right in the classroom!!
